The Baratza® Forté AP is a compact, commercial grade coffee grinder, dedicated to grinding whole bean coffee for all brew methods. The Forté AP incorporates many features that fit well into commercial operations, including:

  • all metal construction
  • small footprint
  • intuitive control panel
  • solid macro/micro adjustment

The Forté-AP offers the ability to grind by time, for espresso dosing, or by weight. Coffee professionals find the Forté AP to be a versatile coffee grinder for many situations as a small restaurant and office espresso/brew grinder, as a Roaster demo grinder for wholesale tasting, or being a dedicated grinder for decaf or single origin in a café.

The Forté AP coffee grinder is a durable workhorse using a 54mm flat ceramic burr, which produces an accurate and precise coffee grind, delivering exceptional cup quality for brew methods from espresso to press pot. We re-designed the guts of the Vario-W for commercial use. The Forte AP design includes a grinding assembly with a threaded burr holder which screws firmly into an all metal grinding chamber for a more accurate grind. A larger gear to belt ratio, combined with a more efficient DC motor increases the speed of grind and duty cycle.
